The current build is Windows 10 1709 (OS build 16299.201). I suggest you check and install all available Windows Updates to make your computer to the latest build.

Alternatively, you can upgrade to Windows 10 1709 via Media Creation Tool provided by Microsoft:


Afterwards, try downloading the app from Windows Store again.
